Nominate a safe boater

This is your opportunity to have your own local boating safety advocate or hero recognized for their outstanding or life saving efforts

This is your opportunity to have your own local boating safety advocate or hero recognized for their outstanding or life saving efforts in the field of recreational boating safety and environmental stewardship.

They may have pulled someone to safety from a capsized boat, taught school children about the importance of always wearing a lifejacket or helped to keep the waterways clean and free of pollutants and debris. Whatever they have contributed to the boating community, we want you to nominate them!

The Canadian Safe Boating Awards are like the People’s Choice awards of safe boating. They are an annual awards ceremony and dinner which takes place every January to recognize the efforts of the public, volunteers, professionals, agencies and organizations who have distinguished themselves in the fields of boating safety and environmental stewardship.

Maybe you or the company you work for has developed a product that enhances boating safety or maybe you or someone you know was walking along the beach, heard someone calling for help and decided to react. The awards span a number of categories including:

  • Rescue of the Year.
  • Marine Professional of the Year.
  • Top Volunteer Dedicated to Safe Boating.
  • Best Boating Safety Initiative.
  • Safeguarding the Environment-Marine Industry.
  • Visible PFD Wear in Advertising.
  • Best Media Contribution to Boating Safety.

If you know or hear of some deserving individual or organization, submit a nomination with related details by completing the form which can be found by going to www.csbc.ca
